The Great Highway, San Francisco (with original soundtrack)

video upload by CatSynth TV

"We travel one of San Francisco's most controversial thoroughfares, the Great Highway. The Great Highway runs for 3.5 miles along the western edge of the city, next to Ocean Beach and the Pacific Ocean. Our journey joins the Great Highway at its intersection with Lincoln Way, at the southwestern corner of Golden Gate Park. We then travel southward to Sloat Boulevard and continue along the Great Highway Extension to Skyline Boulevard and Lake Merced.

The Great Highway was closed to motor vehicles in 2020 during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic, but remained open to pedestrians and bicyclists. It has also periodically closed due to flooding and sand accumulating on the roadmap. Since the middle of 2021, it has operated in a hybrid mode, with the road open to motor vehicles Monday afternoon through Friday morning, and then closed on weekend from Friday afternoon to mid-day on Monday, as well as on holidays. The Great Highway Extension south of Sloat Boulevard is scheduled to close to traffic permanently in 2023.

Original electronic music by Amanda Chaudhary, featuring sounds from Ellott Sharp's Invented Instruments sample pack. This forms both the percussive pattern throughout the video as well as a section of samples played through the Arturia CMI V. Addition synthesizers and effects include:
Cherry Audio GX-80
Strymon Starlab module
East West Ra library (tablas)
MOK Fitryg
Arturia Delay Tape-201
